Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a sturdy milky brown color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that fell off fairly quick. Mild lace.
The aroma had some clean toffee malts up front with some nuts and then some dry leafiness with just a touch of grassy/earthiness rounding it all out.
The flavor slid towards the sweet side initially and then developed the dry leafiness a bit more as it warmed. Nice blend in the aftertaste and rolling into the finish.
The feel was about medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Good carbonation. ABV felt good.
Overall, doesn’t say it was an Autumn release, but somehow I thought this was. Looks like one I get to research, which I don’t mind, as I would have love to have this again if I could get it. tbarnette (105) - Allen Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2005

Tap: deep mahogany brown with nice frothy beige head. Standard roasted malt, nutty aroma but rather muted. Flavor much the same with some bitter chocolate in the background. Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2005
On tap: Aroma is roasty and nutty. Pours a dark brown with orange hilights with a small tan head. Roasty and nutty from start to finish. Slightest hints of chocolate in the background. Moderately hoppy in the finish. Your standard brown ale.
